R. L. Solberg is an author, apologist, and professor of theology based in Nashville, TN, where he lives with his wife of thirty-one years, Debra. They are stakeholders at the Church of the City and have two spectacular daughters who are out making their mark on the world.
Solberg runs an apologetics/teaching ministry called Defending the Biblical Roots of Christianity and is a leading Christian apologist against Torahism (aka Hebrew Roots, Torah-observant Christianity), which is the false teaching that followers of Jesus are required to keep the Old Testament Law. He has been pursuing theology, apologetics, and philosophy formally and informally for more than two decades. He studied at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and has a Master’s Degree in Theological Studies from Williamson College, where he is now an adjunct professor of theology. He also studied Biblical Hebrew through the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and is currently a Ph.D. student of Bible Exposition at Liberty University. Solberg strives to communicate on complex topics with clarity and grace.
“I get emails and messages from people every week whose families, marriages, churches, or friendships are being damaged because of the teachings of some form of Torahism. And that is the mission field to which God has sent me as an apologist. My ministry is all about systematically breaking down teachings that challenge the sufficiency of Christ (2 Cor 10:5) and lifting high the beautiful Gospel of Jesus. Our goal is to promote freedom from spiritual bondage while emphasizing unity (though not uniformity) in the body of Christ.” —R. L. Solberg
For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God and take every thought captive to obey Christ.2 Cor 10:4-5
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”Matthew 22:37–40
